Nuisance Complaints

Nuisances can be many different things to different people.   KRS 212.210 states that the health department “may examine  all nuisances that may, in their opinion, be injurious to the health of the inhabitants”.  Your health, as well as the health of our community, are our primary concern.


Some of the things that may be considered a nuisance are:

  • the illegal dumping of organic garbage

  • old tires

  • standing water

  • leaking sewer or septic lines 


Not everything that may upset you or be unsightly can be considered a health hazard. Sometimes problems can be better addressed by city ordinances that may more specifically target the issue.

If you have an issue you feel we may be able to assist with, please call 859-873-4541 and ask for the Environmental Department.
